Rent 'the-EDGE'

Many of our friends and readers have asked if the 'Cottage-on-the-EDGE'  is available for rent.  We are pleased to announce that the Cottage on the EDGE is now available for rent -- and year round!

At the Cottage on the EDGE there are two cottages available for rent, separately or together.  The main cottage is a 4-season country home with all the amenities and can accommodate up to 9 people before breaking out the sleeping bags.  The Bunkie is a 3-season cottage that can accommodate up to 3 (4 in a pinch) people.

The Cottage on the EDGE is Wheelchair Friendly.  There is a wheelchair ramp at the entrance and everything that a disabled companion of a guest would need can be accessed on the main floor:  master bedroom, bathroom, the LR/DR, Kitchen and the deck.  We have a disabled loved one in our family, and we have made the Cottage on the EDGE as accessible by disabled persons as possible so that they can join us and to enjoy the cottage.
